Without scenario planning, your organization could be caught unprepared when facing an unforeseen event. Chemical manufacturers face very specific challenges keeping the supply chain running smoothly. Historically, many process industry organizations find themselves still recovering several weeks-to a few months-after an unplanned disruption, struggling just to get to a point where production approaches pre-incident levels. As planners try to prepare, inadequate planning tools force them to spend an unexpectedly large amount of time on disaster planning.
The key to being responsive is to develop robust plans plans that work even with disruption that can tolerate anomalies. For supply chain professionals, advanced planning goals should include minimizing the financial impact, preserving customer relations, business operations and maintaining optimal supply chain operations in the face of interruptions. Issues to address in the face of disaster include:
- Plant shutdowns
- Transportation Re-Routing
- Inventory Relocation
- Raw Materials / Feedstock Sourcing
- Customer Support
- Contingency Planning
- Unpredictable Demand Management
